The driving theory test how did you score?

So I just took the DVLA online theory test … good for a giggle and I scored scored 43 out of 50 which is the minimum to pass I believe. I surprised myself that I passed TBH !
No revision at all and all answers based on my ahem,… many years of driving experience. I completed the test in around 15 minutes but couldn't have scored higher taking longer.
Best question was, what should you do with a used car battery ? one of the answers you could choose was … bury it in the garden have a go …. And try the hazard perception test too.

Just done it and got 46 out of 50.

When I did my test it was out of 35 and I got 35 out of 35

At the time Hazard Perception was quite new but got through it all first time.

49 out of 50... I had a question about how long to allow a burn to cool... I have a feeling I got that wrong (and "man up" wasn't an option )


EDIT: I got a roundabout sign wrong. I selected "Mini Roundabout Ahead" rather than "Roundabout Ahead"

48 out of 50, well chuffed. It has been 31 years since my driving test and in those days there wasn't the theory test.

49 out of 50 so not bad for someone who passed a long time ago (and passed a motorcycle test when the examiner stood on the street watching you go around the block )

Like another poster the question that got me was the one about how long to cool a burn for. Really? I feel a lot safer knowing that the youth of today will know how to treat my burns when they have crashed their fuel spilling banger into me.

48/50 for me.

I too don't understand the relevance of the burns question - took me back to Home Economics GCSE for a second or two.

I got 47.

31 years since I passed my test!! Few guesses in there, got the burns one wrong too!!

Not sure if it's just me cos I'm getting old and grumpy but I thought a lot of questions were unnecessary and nothing to do with safe driving. Also quite a bit of 'common sense' in there too!!
